    Since its publication in 1952, Charlotte's Web has become one of America's best-loved children's books. For fifty years, this timeless story of the pig named Wilbur and the wise spider named Charlotte who saved him has continued to warm the hearts of readers everywhere. This 1953 Newbery Honor Book comes to life in a delightful unabridged recording, read lovingly by the author himself.

    Overall

    This is an absolute delight. "Charlotte's Web" being one of those "crossover" bits of fiction that is as pleasing and winsome to adults as to children (perhaps moreso), we come to love the characters, and the descriptions of their lives that whisk us into a wonderful tale. Mr. White's ability to create engaging dialogue, to turn a phrase so that we want to hear it again, is most clear in this book. He was one of those rare authors able to captivate the listener by reading his work in his own voice, and this is a fine treat: a fun and exquisitely-written children's story, read to you with great and skillful enthusiasm by its author. A gem.

    "It appears that the help has been taking notes, and good ones. The help is very sharp-eyed indeed. The Nanny Diaries is diabolically funny...vastly entertaining...perfectly pitched social satire," raves The New York Times. Academy Award-winning actress Julia Roberts narrates this popular and critically acclaimed book - an enthusiastic skewering of high society written by two former nannies.

    What a hoot. Light, funny, fast, quick. Simplistic but engaging character development, teensy but amusing plot, a chick-flick audio escape that is clever and funny.
